Come light the night for a great cause. Add your own creative glow by dressing up in costumes that rock and glow!

Les Misérables Phoenix Theatre | Now through May 25 602.254.2151 | PhoenixTheatre.com Les Misérables has thrilled audiences all over the world; now, the timeless classic returns for Phoenix Theatre’s 93rd season. Experiencing this musical on stage will touch your heart and soul in a way no film can. The tale of Jean Valjean’s unjust imprisonment and quest for redemption is set against the highly volatile political backdrop of a revolutionary period in France. The stunning score features beautiful orchestrations and instantly recognizable melodies including On My Own, Bring Him Home and I Dreamed a Dream. This sweeping epic of love, loss, rebellion and rebirth is delivered with heartbreaking poignancy. At Phoenix Theatre, you’ll be closer to the barricade than ever before! The 99th Annual Southwestern Amateur Cochise Course at the Desert Mountain Club | June 4-7 480.595.4090 | SWGA.net As the highest-ranked amateur golf tournament in the Southwest, the championship attracts the world’s best amateur golfers. This 7,019-yard course which Jack Nicklaus has called “one of the most picturesque golf courses in the world” will provide the players with a true test of their skills. With origins dating back as early as 1908, the tournament was formally organized into a regional competition in 1915.  Since then the championship has grown to many more players and a stepping stone for many great future PGA Tour stars. Hollywood Costume Phoenix Art Museum | Now through July 6 602.257.1222 | PHXArt.org A ground breaking exhibition that celebrates and explores costume design as a key component of cinema storytelling. Arriving in Phoenix from the Victoria and Albert Museum in London, this major multimedia exhibition explores the essentials of costume design and illuminates the costume designer’s creative process, bringing together more than 100 of the world’s most iconic costumes from a century  of filmmaking.

With Father’s Day just around the corner, many are wondering what to get the men in our lives. Whether he’s a dad or not, why not forego the usual tie and give your favorite fella the ultimate guy gift: A man-cave, of course! Find the perfect room in your home, designate it “boys only” (as if!), and start design-dreaming with some of these fun ideas to make the most of his special space. Root for the home team! When designing a man-cave, sports themes often rule, complete with plenty of sports memorabilia from his favorite teams. After all, there’s no better place for his baseball jersey, hat, and bat collection than on display in his very own digs. For a clean, polished look, have special jerseys, signed photos and balls, and other valuable souvenirs framed and hung on walls or displayed on shelving. Get plenty of extra-big seating for game watching and the friends who will invariably be hanging at your house. And screen it up, if you can! Think one big screen in the center with smaller ones framing it so his buds can catch all the action, at all the games, all at once. Great design idea: A bar behind the sofa providing extra spots for drinks, apps, and quick pull-up seating. If movie viewing is more the main attraction, think big when it comes to the screen. Real big. Theater seating is also nice, but a super comfy sectional roomy enough for a handful of buddies will suffice in most settings. And don’t forget an impressive bar area complete with beer and sparkling beverages on tap. Cup holders in those chairs anyone? If autos are his obsession, why not turn the garage into the coolest car space around? Vintage cars make a perfect display in one bay of an ultra-luxe garage, with seating and a mini-lounge area in another. Whether he actually spends time here working on his cars or just likes hanging out there to escape the heat, this is one room in the house that can often be overlooked. The garage man-cave may also be the perfect spot for a pool table, air hockey, darts, or other fun games your guy likes to play. For golfers, it’s also a great location for a putting green or golf simulation machine, allowing him to perfect his swing right in the comfort of his home. Oh, and the final touch to any man-cave zone? A urinal, of course.
